2. Kids are inhaling this shit, and we don't know what's in it.

But we do know people are getting put in the hospital after vaping.

One guy had to be put in a medically induced coma.

Chapman told NBC News that the four teens admitted to Children's Minnesota all arrived with what doctors originally thought was a bad respiratory infection, like pneumonia.

But instead of getting better with treatment, they got worse.

"They have progressed to have significant difficulty with their breathing and increasing lung distress," Chapman said. "They've ended up needing our intensive care unit and in some cases assistance with their breathing."

One such patient, Dylan Nelson, 26, of Burlington, Wisconsin, started feeling sick after taking a couple of hits from a new vape cartridge. The next morning, he went to the hospital, and his symptoms got progressively worse throughout the day.

By nightfall, his lungs were filling with fluid and doctors had to put him into a medically induced coma. He has since been discharged from the hospital and is recovering slowly.


No, they don't put harmful chemicals in there "just for fun." They do it because they don't care. They use whatever is around, is cheap, and helps deliver their product better. They don't have to explain why because the FDA does not make vape manufacturers list their ingredients.

Of course cigarettes, over time, can be much worse for you, causing emphysema, heart disease and lung cancer. But I am unaware of a person smoking one tobacco cigarette and having their lungs fill with fluid, requiring they be put in a medically induced coma. Yes, that particular "dude" bought his vape cartridge off the street, but street vendors have no less disclosure requirements than Juul. And kids are particularly vulnerable to buying cartridges off of street vendors who use kiddie flavors, after Juul stopped selling such flavors.

Are you suggesting vaping is safe and this is all a hoax?
